Great, 17 days after the murder of Kashoggi and at the same time when 
Trump puts pressure on the Saudis to offer an "explanation", the "Rojava 
revolutionaries" manage to say something on one of the most important 
current events in the Middle East and world politics! But could we 
expect any criticism of the Saudi kingdom or MBS? Surely not! These are 
the YPG's friends and (surely) financier. How shameful for the 
"progressive" YPG and their "revolutionary" supporters in the world!

*Pressure building over the Khashoggi incident *

As claims that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the 
consulate can’t be hidden any more, the pressure is building on the 
Riyadh administration.

Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul on 
October 2, and was never heard from again. The suspicions that Khashoggi 
was murdered in the consulate are all but certain at this point. The 
Saudi government hasn’t made any statements to this end as of yet, but 
many countries and institutions are upping the pressure against them.

*ATTENDEES WITHDRAWING FROM THE ECONOMY CONFERENCE*

As the pressure builds over the Jamal Khashoggi incident, the number of 
countries and institutions withdrawing from the economy conference 
titled Invest in the Future Initiative to be held in Riyadh next week is 
on the rise.

The IMF, the World bank and many other institutions were to attend the 
conference at the presidential level, but have withdrawn. With this 
decision, several countries also withdrew from the conference.

*TRUMP: IT IS CERTAIN THAT HE WAS KILLED, THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES*

US President Donald Trump, after criticism that he didn’t exert clear 
pressure since the Khashoggi incident broke out, said it was “most 
probably” certain that the opposition journalist was killed.

Trump stressed that the incident is “very bad”, and that there will be 
consequences for the Saudi administration.
